The Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians – Austria was established in 1960.
Since then, more than 40 national championships (Österreichische Meisterschaften) took place in every part of the country. An average of about 100 participants enjoyed the tournament every year, again and again.

Highlights in GFR Austrians history were undoubtedly the organisations of their international Rotary Golf championships!

In 1981 the 7th European Rotary Golf Championship in Wien
In 1989 the 15th European Rotary Golf Championship in Saalfelden
In 2001 the 27th European Rotary Golf Championship in Kitzbühel
In 2009 the 37th IGFR World Championship in Kitzbühel

In 2020 the 46th European Open Championship will take place in Kitzbühel again. IGFR World President Rtn Gerhard Resch will chair his Organising Committee and establish another milestone for GFR Austria.
